Former Virginia Tech kicker, Shayne Graham, recently retired from a 15 year N.F.L. career. Graham was the last Hokie from the 1999 national championship team still playing in the pros. Retirement apparently didn’t sit well with Graham, as he recently announced via social media he has accepted a new position. Graham, a recent twitter user, put the news out first on Facebook, then on twitter.

Graham retired during this off season, and is a true Virginia Tech legend. The drive in Morgantown that kept Virginia Tech in the title hunt was capped by Graham hitting a huge kick. After 15 years kicking in the pros, Graham has set his sights on coaching football. The former Pulaski Cougar is heading to Central Michigan, and will be in charge of special teams quality control. Gobbler Country would like to give an official congratulations to Shayne Graham, and wish him well in his future endeavors.
